Hello, dear hypothetical readers, and welcome to "Raising Isabella: Natural Homemaking in an Unnatural World!" I have decided to write a blog, not because of my outstanding writing capabilities, but because I am excited to share about my journey into living a more natural lifestyle. I've gotten into countless conversations in which I say something, and then realize that I've got a whole lot of explaining to do. For example:
Me: "I really need to feed my kefir, it's been almost 2 days.
My friend: "Who is Kefir? Your cat?"
(Note: this is a hypothetical situation, no one has actually thought I had a cat named Kefir. Although, that wouldn't be a bad name. Isn't there an actor or something with that name?)
See? How many of you know what kefir is? Anyone? As we speak, blogger is trying to correct my spelling on the word kefir, because kefir is apparently not in the blogger dictionary. Well, that's what I'm here for! Of course, you could just Google it, but someone's got to tell you that kefir exists before you can do a search on it, right?
Well, I have lots of fun information to share about things I find exciting, like watching bread rise. Yes, please don't get too excited, but I think a series on sourdough is in the works. You can also bet that you'll be hearing about cloth diapering and lots of homemade household cleaners, cosmetics, and foods.
This week, I'll be sharing my story of how our family came to be so stinkin' environmentally friendly.
Any topics you (still hypothetical) guys would like me to discuss? I'm up for some challenges here! I also take words of encouragement if you'd like to hear more from me!
